Fig. 11
Your router has a variable speed control selector
designed to allow operator control of speed and
torque limits. You can make speed selections best
suited to the type of cut, the material being cut, and
the size of bit being used. The variable speed control
selector allows you to adjust router speed from 15,000
to 25,000 rpm. There is an eight step scale numbered
1 through 8 on the variable speed control selector. To
increase the speed and torque of your router, turn the
vadable speed control selector to a higher setting.
Turn to a lower setting to decrease speed and torque.
Note: If you do not want to use the variable speed
control selector, turn to the highest possible setting,
and the feature will not be active.
The speed selection chart shown gives suggested
speed settings based on the diameter of the cutter
and the type of material being routed.
